The Baltimore Ravens vs. Indianapolis Colts betting odds opened at Colts -5 and have dropped all the way down to -3 ½ with a few online sports books still offering a line of -4.

The Colts have won the last five in this series dating back to 2002. Their last three wins were on the road and they were decisive wins.

Indianapolis is also looking for its first decisive win of the season, writes Kate Hedlin of

The 2006 Super Bowl champs are coming off a 31-27 victory at Houston last Sunday, rallying from 17 points down with just over four minutes remaining. Manning led two of the scoring drives, including connecting with Reggie Wayne for the decisive score with 1:54 remaining after Gary Brackett recovered Sage Rosenfels' fumble and returned it 68 yards for a touchdown with 3:36 to go.

Indianapolis also had to rally in its previous win, coming back from a 15-0 deficit in the third quarter to beat Minnesota 18-15 on Sept. 14. Manning threw a 32-yard TD pass to Wayne with 5:54 left and the Colts converted a 2-point try to tie that contest.

"You just don't have that many 15 or 17-point comebacks in the NFL, and we've had two in three weeks," coach Tony Dungy said. "Then, we have another game where we score to take the lead and don't hold it. It's been a roller coaster, but it probably just tells us that we aren't playing consistent enough."

While Sagarin has the Colts able to win by only one point, past history suggests they can destroy Baltimore. Still, the Ravens have looked good thus far and the Colts have not looked like the team we have grown accustomed to due to injuries. does not recommend betting on this game.
